Tierney Brádaigh

Art by Remarin

Due to events in her past, Tierney remains in self-imposed exile from her birth pack, the Nemain Tribe; along with Nimh and Máire . Daughter of Brumaire and Kane, born in Airgid Gleann, Tierney was betrothed to Diarmid, her combat instructer from a young age, although the arrangement was not of her choosing.

Seeking out her remaining biological family, Tierney encountered her uncle, who deterred her from seeking her father, luring her in and gaining her assistance in founding Sapient in October, 2014. Not long after settling into her new home, Diarmid sought her out, seeking to bring her home - where she'd be executed for the nature of her birth. Unwilling to die and blindly believe Diarmid's reassurances that they wouldn't kill her, she fought against him every step, eventually wearing him down until he agreed to stay in Sapient with her.

Anger and heated emotion lead to a romantic tyst, the two having one child: Ruari Ahearne. With a son shared between them, their relation grew. Tierney finally discarded her pride and owned up to her true feelings, resulting in her and Diarmid becoming mates in July 2015. In December 2015 they had their second litter of two pups; Dareios Ahearne and Kadir Ahearne.

Unfortunately, their mateship was short lived, for conflict soon struck Sapient, with Diarmid being the first and only victim of the attack, dying late February 2016.


Tierney Brádaigh is currently a member of Sapient, holder of the Capentry metier and a AoS in Security Management.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Overall Tierney is a combination of Wolf and Irish Wolfhound, the other parts of her heritage hidden by these two dominant parts of her. Her tail is long, that of a typical wolf; none of the triplets inheriting their father's dog like tail, although her ears are large and floppy, from her mixed dog heritage.
  • Fur: Coarse and dense to the touch, her pelt is thick and wild, slimming down to highlight her long neck and giving the Irish girl a high profile.
    • Optime Hair: In optime form, her hair is a shocking combination of fire red and darker brown, wild and knotted, her hair is adored with what appears to be hundreds of feathers, beads and strips of material, adding more colour to her wild man.
  • Facial Features: A dead set combination of everything, he face doesn't resemble any particular species, an even mix of them all; slightly narrower and more chiselled than that of a wolf, too rounded to be coyote and yet, too wild and slim to pass for a Irish Wolfhound.
  • Build and Size: Built solidly, she has the mass and body of a large grey wolf, with balanced, long legs of the Irish wolfhound. Abnormally tall in all forms, her frame is packed solidly with both weight and muscles, her arms and legs having the most sharply cut muscles out of all her features. A combination of her fathers strangely long legs and her Irish Wolfhound heritage, the Bear-clan daughter has never ending legs, adorned with large and notably un-dainty feet that she is more than willing to use to cause damage upon others.
  • Humanization: Describe the level of humanization your character has, e.g.: Often wears Accessories.

Images

2.  Personality

Tierney strongly associates with the Irish goddess Morrígan and can often been seen praising the goddess or following long embedded cultural rituals, ceremonies and the like to worship her. A monster in a female skin, she is a proud warrior whom finds little value in anything else except the art of battle, as well as a loving sister and a natural born leader. For the most part she is calm like the ocean, capable of rising and causing chaos if stirred, a defender as often as she is the instigator, trivial and random things can set the giant of a women into a blind rage that can last a matter of seconds to weeks.

Despite her looks, she isn't quite all bulk and no brains, the Brádaigh warrior maintains common sense and a mind geared to strategical thinking a victor of the battled field yields. Outside of combat though, she is a little slow or down right oblivious to subtle social hints and cues, intolerant of those with overly sensitive feelings Tierney will happily step on every emotional land mind someone possess, without blinking an eye or holding a ounce of guilt for doing so. Blunt and honest, she does not care for superficial things like romance or appearance, lusting only after the endearing rush of fighting.

Like a magpie, she is drawn to shiny or new weapons and has often been seen talking to her own, caressing and soothing them as if they were a child. It is never advisable to touch the bear tribe daughters weapons without consent, let alone to take one from her unless one has a death wish.

Amongst her siblings she is a figure head; the eldest she quickly fell into the role of a leader, the referee and the voice of blunt common sense, both doting and maternal to her sisters and them alone, to the point she may be considered a pushover and prone to spoiling and indulging in the whims too often for their own good.

Strife is like a drug to her, the bear tribe's daughter believes herself to be a messenger of death, as the great crow once was, capable of influencing the outcome of a wars and inspiring fear even in the strongest of men. A less prominent side of Tierney is that of her strong connection to the earth; nurturing animals and often draws in strays without intending too.

5.  History

Born into the Nemain Tribe, Tierney was the supposed heir of Ferris Brádaigh, although unknown to anyone, she was biologically the daughter of Brumaire). With Ferris believed to be infertile, Kane sought out a male with a similar appearance to her mate, sneaking away and becoming pregnant by him, claiming to the oblivious Ferris that they were his - so eager for his own children, he believed her. Content with living the lie, Tierney along with her siblings were raised like princesses, educated and raised to be the greatest example of their tribe.

And then Cillian was born; unknown to everyone, he is the only true heir of the clan's chief. Knowing full well that she'd been with no one else, that Cillian was the true heir and the assumption of Ferris infertility was incorrect, Kane began to grow nervous, her actions heavily guided by her guilt. And then the ceremony of blood came up, the triplets are seven months of age, requiring Tier (The eldest of the triplets) to take part in.

The ceremony goes wrong, resulting in shame upon the family. Having long since held her doubts, Máire voices her suspicion that the reason the ceremony went wrong was because they are not of the true blood; for that is the only logical explanation. Kane, weighed down by personal guilt and fear of exposure after the failed ceremony begins working them harder in the art of combat and other tribal customs, forcing the triplets to seek perfection and prove their blood to be true and strong.

Pushed by her mothers need to ensure their triplets positions, Tierney is pressured into entering an apprenticeship with an older tribe member, to gain more experience in fighting. But even with their success and competence in their roles within the tribe, Kane grows restless and as the guilt and concern of wrath of the gods, spills the beans about the girls true heritage.

Shocked by the news, the three storm of and begin arguing vehemently in the wilderness, Tier wanting to speak with their father, whilst Máire and Nimh are not as open to the idea of contacting their true father. Their arguing is broken up by the appearance of their younger brother; spiteful towards him and his true heritage, the argument escalates, awakening and drawing in a nearby bear. The bear attacks, littering Cillian injuries and wounding the sisters; in fear they flee, believing their brother to be dead. Out of guilt, the triplets exile themselves from the tribe, unable to face the shame of what has transpired.
